I feel the need for a breath of fresh air in my creative life. Most of my inspiration comes from watching 1930s and 40s movies and period-era films and reading.
This weekend I'll be interested to see how Brisbane artists translate their passions, obsessions and dreams into wearable or useable, original artworks at the Finders Keepers market.
I'll gladly tackle a bit of fashion DIY when the inspiration strikes but how do these people maintain such high levels of creativity and enthusiasm?
Especially when many of these emerging designers and artists work alone at home through long, lonely nights and days to produce high-quality pieces that may or may not strike the right note with enthusiasts.
A wide variety of artists are promised to grace the halls of the Old Museum, among them are Ginny and Jude, whose Etsy store specialises in feather headpeices.
I need this breathtaking butterfly "mural" from Melbourne's Almond Tree Frames on the wall opposite my bed ... mind you, I don't need more reasons to keep me from getting up in the morning.
